France Child Beauty.jpg

This undated photo provided by the Mini Miss committee shows Oceane Scharre, 10, elected Mini Miss France 2011, left, and Miss France 2011 Mathilde Florin. France's Senate voted Tuesday night, Sept. 17, 2013, to ban beauty pageants for children under 16, in an effort to protect children "especially girls" from being sexualized too early. Anyone who enters a child into such a contest would face up to two years in prison and 30,000 euros in fines, according to the measure.
